I am sure that on the personal level all members of the Theosophical 
Society are quite nice and benevolent people. In my view, the 
problems arise when we begin to unconsciously identify our 
personal views and interests with those of the Theosophical Society, 
begin to see ourselves as the protectors of Theosophy against 
various enemies and imagine that we are called to play this role.

Therefore the situation can not be properly analyzed on the level of 
personalities - we all see ourselves as real and dedicated 
theosophists. The understanding and solution of the situation is 
possible only by using an analytic approach from the standpoint of 
principles and the Rules and Regulations. Are they respected or are 
they not?

The major role in the decay of the TS in Yugoslavia played members of 
the ES who most probably genuinely felt that the rising 
psychism will destroy the Society. But with their illegitimate 
actions they produced exactly the result they were most afraid off. 
And they continue to operate within this perspective and impose to 
the Society the rules which are proper to the ES.
